A disgraced South Korean scientist -- who gained fame in 2004 when he claimed to have cloned human embryonic stem cells -- on Monday was convicted of embezzling money and illegally buying human eggs, state media reported.
Soon, the food you put on your dinner table may be from cloned animals and chances are, you won't even know it. The Food and Drug Administration announced in January 2008 that's it OK to sell meat and milk from cloned cattle, pigs and goats. What does this mean to the consumer? Is cloned meat safe? How does it differ from regular animal products?
In a long-awaited and controversial decision, the Food and Drug Administration announced Tuesday that food products derived from cloned cattle, swine, goats, sheep and their offspring are safe enough to enter the U.S. food supply.
The FDA announced a report Thursday finds meat and milk from adult cattle, pigs and goats and their offspring are safe for human consumption, although the agency is still asking producers not to introduce food from clones or their offspring into the food supply.
One day after a panel investigating the work of disgraced South Korean scientist Hwang Woo-suk found that he faked claims of cloning human embryonic stem cells, the Seoul National University has issued a public apology.
A panel investigating the work of disgraced South Korean scientist Hwang Woo-suk has found that he faked claims of cloning human embryonic stem cells, in what could be the biggest cover-up in modern scientific history.
A breakthrough in human embryonic stem cell research by scientists in South Korea has been hailed as ground-breaking, with the potential to fight a host of ailments, but some people have raised ethical concerns.
South Korean researchers reported Thursday they have created human embryos through cloning and extracted embryonic stem cells, the universal cells that scientists expect will result in breakthroughs in medical research.
